My wife is taking Prozac (fluoxetine) primarily for IBS relief (been on it 2 weeks). She has a severe cold and I want to know if NyQuil would be ok or not.

Caution. Nyquil and many cold/cough OTC meds contain dextromethorphan, a cough suppressant, which can interact with serotonergic antidepressants like Prozac (fluoxetine) to increase risk for serotonin syndrome. Ask pharmacist for advice to avoid dextromethorphan. See: http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/serotonin-syndrome/basics/definition/con-20028946 I hope this helps. Best wishes.
